The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on 8 May announced Indian squad for the upcoming Champions Trophy in England after putting aside the ongoing tussle between the Indian board and the cricket governing body.
The announcement came after a delay of more than two weeks after missing the April 25 deadline set by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to name the team.
Pacer Mohammed Shami has made a comeback in the team after playing his last ODI in March 2015. Other pacers in the team are Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah.
After making a successful comeback in the ODI against England, star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has also been selected for the tournament.
Team: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, M Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Manish Pandey.
ANI reported that selectors have also put five players -- Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik -- on stand-by for the tournament.
